DANICA PATRICK: I’m NOT A SEX SYMBOL!

Protesting too much? NASCAR  Speed Queen DANICA PATRICK touts dangerous curves as thrill crazed racer.

Not only that but Danica downplayed a media fueled blood feud with NASCAR newbie former "Price Is Right" hottie Maryeve Dufault.  Danica insists she’s NOT a sex symbol despite showing off her assets in commercials and glam pictorials.

“People don't know how to describe women in a pretty way,” Danica told FoxNews.

“People just don't know what to call women who look attractive. The easiest thing to do, that gets the most attention, and that people are familiar with hearing, is 'sex symbol.'” 

Danica claims such tagging is woefully misleading.

“I don't think that's who I am, but it is how people describe me," she said. "I’m just as a person doing things I have fun doing, and that I'm comfortable doing.

"When I go to the race track I'm ALL business – I don't have much make up on, I comb my hair, and what you see is what you get.

“I love being girly, and having both sides keeps me balanced as a person, and keeps me fun."
